The Post Foundation Sponsored Limited Submission Opportunities

Foundation Sponsored Limited Submission Opportunities

The University of Utah Foundation Relations team manages several limited submission opportunities sponsored by various foundations each year. Foundations Limited Submissions are reviewed by a Foundations LSO Committee that selects applications most likely to: 

  • Perpetuate success for the University; 
  • Assist the selected faculty member in advancing their research; and 
  • Meet the goals and expectations of the sponsor 

The CFR team conducts three cycles of Foundation LSO review each academic year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. All Foundation-sponsored LSOs that are currently managed by the UofU CFR Office are listed HERE, with links to learn more about each program. The InfoReady internal competition links for each program are published as they are created. Interested faculty members must apply to the internal competition and be selected by the LSO Committee for each program.  

Internal competitions for all Winter 2023-2024 Foundations LSOs are active and shared below! Please contact Gwen Allouch if you have questions about applying for an opportunity listed above.

The Ono Initiative supports creative research conducted by emerging early/mid career Chemical Biologists in search of new discoveries, solutions, and the development of high-impact science. Target research of Chemical Biology is not specified by the Ono Initiative. Chemical Biology is defined as research that deals with the interface between chemistry and biology. The criteria for this field are deliberately broad so as not to disqualify potentially innovative and groundbreaking projects. Funding consists of a three-year research award totaling $1,035,000 ($900,000 project costs + $135,000 indirect costs at 15%).
